Could this really be an email from George Karl's lawyer to the website FireGeorgeKarl.com?
Man, have you read Chris Sheridan's Daily Dime? One line: "So there you have it, four reasons to back up the premise that this might have been Isiah's last game with the Knicks."
Buck Williams does not have an NBA job, which may or may not have something to do with the color of his skin.
Kurt from Forum Blue and Gold: "... the Lakers need Andrew Bynum back to make a serious run at the title. I think we all knew that, but these games confirmed it. I love Pau Gasol. He has been everything we could have hoped for. But he is not a powerful physical presence in the paint, someone we can count on to bang away and get boards and play tough defense at the rim (or on the pick and roll)."
Al Thornton's dubious double double: points and turnovers.
Mark Cuban says foreigners will soon be arriving, with their fancy exchange rates, to buy American sports teams.
Ivan Carter of the Washington Post quotes Gilbert Arenas: "I've been cleared to practice and play. Right now, it's just getting in shape. It's more mental. I'm actually scared to play right now. I think that's where we're at right now so I'm looking at it game by game. I think I'm scared to go out there right now. I just need to go through these practices and get my rhythm back. I'm still going to try and take it slow."
This is an article about Brent Barry's wife Erin that you should really read. As a professional adcovate for abused and neglected children she is to be respected.

Channing Frye wanted his brother Logan to follow in his footsteps to the University of Arizona. But he's going to Michigan. Frye blogs: "This lone wolf has to be different and he took his fat head to the cold, terrible, frozen tundra of Michigan. On the other hand, he is a nerd to a brainiac so I guess it's sort of a good school for that. Not the best school ever like U of A, but maybe it comes in a close 45th because U of A takes up the top 44 places as the best school ever. So, congrats, on being accepted into igloo school."
Andre Miller, not winning an awards for interview skills.
Last year's Kings vs. this year's, in nifty charts.
Brian McCormick: "I think the Rockets will hold onto a play-off spot as long as McGrady stays healthy. They play hard and play with a purpose and I think that is enough to overcome the ambivalent Nuggets."
Video of Kobe Bryant not, despite appearances, beaning a lady in the face with a towel. UPDATE: Rasheed Wallace demonstrates how to throw towels at fans in a way that makes everyone happy.
